Stefan Fletcher's Study Posts

Sculptures from antiquity were supposed to represent an ideal, some form of perfection or perhaps Praxiteles and his ilk never suffered from the constipation…

Punning is incurable disease, not helped by my single-digit mental age, but I love this head and the title was irresistible. The first was taken with a…

The title refers to a 1972 risqué - and probably tacky - film I've never seen. Fortunately, I don't have any ideas about how to represent Deep Throat here on PB…

Please refer to the glossary of technical terms used in this post and marked with an asterisk (*), provided at the bottom of this post. Well, this got rather…

I am living the opposite of calm, the opposite of the things I like and believe make life enjoyable. So here is the closest I could get to representing it. Feel…

(I deleted my previous post . Apologies to Ryana [photoblog.com] for wiping out her kind comment.) This is what opposable thumbs is all about. My…

It’s been one of those days. One of those years, actually. I take chilled comfort in the fact that I’m not alone here: some of you organise piss-ups in India…

I decided to conduct a two-fold test tonight on: 1. The resolving power of my favourite lens 2. My resolve in not drinking the subject The only optical illusion…
